The latest Australian Child Health Poll of 1977 adults with 3797 children has found that almost all Australian teenagers, two-thirds of primary school-aged children and one-third of preschoolers now own their own tablet or smartphone.

As well as owning their own device, three in four teenagers, and one in six primary school-aged children, have their own social media accounts despite the fact that most social media platforms require users to be 13 years or older.
